2nd Sunday after Pentecost/External Solemnity of Corpus Christi

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Just over a week ago, Pope Francis, speaking to oil executives, declared a “climate emergency”, stating that “future generations stand to inherit a greatly spoiled world”. The Pope has no authority by virtue of his office, nor any personal qualification, to make any credible statement on the various physical sciences that are engaged in climate studies. On the other hand, we can say that we have an “Ecclesiastical emergency”, in which future generations stand to inherit a greatly spoiled Church. If any further proof of this were needed, it has arrived in the form of the working document for  the Amazonian Synod. The document has little if anything to do with Christianity, let alone Catholicism. It is a revolutionary document that opens the door to pantheism and paganism. Following its principles could only lead to ruin for civil society and for the Church. I commend to your study the following article by Chris Ferrara.

Let us pray for the Church.

Fr Glen Tattersall PP

Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – this Friday, 28th June: Masses will be at 7 am (Low), 10 am (Low) and 7 pm (Solemn). The Act of Reparation and Litany of the Sacred Heart will be prayed after each Mass (a Plenary Indulgence is granted for this under the usual conditions). Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament will immediately follow the evening Mass. This day is also observed as a day of prayer for the sanctification of priests.

Anniversaries of Priestly Ordination. Please pray for those who are celebrating their anniversary of priestly ordination this week: Fr Tattersall (23rd June), Fr Marshall (27th June) and Fr McDaniels (29th June).

Sunday 7th July marks the 12th anniversary of the promulgation of Summorum Pontificum. Let us renew our thanks to God for this act of Benedict XVI, and pray for its ever greater implementation.

Enrolment in the brown scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel: enrolment in the scapular will be available after each Mass on Sunday, 14th July (the closest Sunday to the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, on 16th July). Scapulars will be available for those who need them (donation requested).

Please note that there will be no 10 am Mass this Wednesday, 26th June.
